The electricity sector plays a significant role in industrial energy consumption.
The direct coal usage in the industrial sector has decreased, however, indirectly
coal usage has stayed constant.
Residential & Commercial energy use has also increased steadily.
Direct coal usage has been decreasing, however, indirect usage has increased
Due to the electricity sector.
There is a strong relationship between total transportation energy
and gasoline consumption.
Copper is the highest-produced metal
Coal contributes to a majority of SOx emission from the industrial sector
Coal also indirectly contributes to the majority of SOx emissions from the residential and commercial sectors
Transportation emission has decreased over the past 50 years due to the elimination of coal from the transportation sector.
Copper usage produces the most SOx emissions
When the electricity sector is included into the industrial sector, the industrial
emissions have become more efficient since 1970
When electricity is included into the residential & commercial sectors
there appears to be a more efficient use of fuel.
The transportation sector produces very little Sox emission per BTU consumed
Copper contributes the most towards Sox emission among the major metals
